Can You Obtain an H1-B Work Visa?
An employer may be able to seek an H1-B visa for a potential employee if:
- The position requires a bachelor’s degree or higher, or
- The job requires a specialized bachelor’s degree at minimum or higher education that gives the potential employee unique skills, or
- The open position is a specialty occupation that requires a unique combination of education and skills.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services limits the amount of eligible H1-B visas it gives out each year, and the application process is complex. One minor mistake can prevent you from obtaining the visa. Having a skilled lawyer on your side can help give you a better chance of successfully filing for and obtaining an H1-B visa work visa.
